Redbone Ridges Landfill

The Solid Waste Management Enterprise Fund is responsible for operating the county’s 610.19 acre (162.62 permitted acres) Subtitle D municipal solid waste Redbone Ridges Landfill and maintaining the permanently closed 40 acre Harris Beamer landfill. This fund operates six manned collection sites located throughout the county and performs recycling services. The Board of County Commissioners approved a twenty year management agreement with Santek Environmental of Georgia to manage the Redbone Ridges Landfill, the six manned collection sites, and the recycling center beginning February 1, 2006. The term of the agreement was extended to forty years during November 2010. The closed Harris Beamer landfill will remain the responsibility of the county. This Fund generates revenue from host fees, closure fees, lease payments for county-owned equipment, and interest earnings.  In 2021, Republic Services became the managing agent of the landfill.

Hard Hats and Safety vests ARE required at all landfills.
